BIG SKY — The lineup for the 12th annual Big Sky Big Grass Festival includes Leftover Salmon, the Travelin’ McCourys, Billy Strings, the Larry Keel Experience, Keller & The Keels, Two Bit Franks, Madison Range, the Gallatin Grass Project, Laney Lou and the Bird Dogs, the Kitchen Dwellers and more.

Ski during the day and dance at night at the four-day festival, Feb. 8–11. Music will be performed at the Missouri Ballroom, Montana Jack, Carabiner Lounge and Chet’s Bar & Grill.

Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has been entertaining crowds for more than 25 years, creating music influenced by rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues. They have headlined festivals from coast to coast.

Billy Strings is back again at Big Sky Big Grass, this year with a new album, “Turmoil & Tinfoil.” The Nashville-based player and songwriter is known for his energetic live performances and lyrics that often describe painful stories about things like addiction, incarceration and racism.

The Travelin’ McCourys can’t stand still. They are on the road — and online — entertaining audiences with live shows that include some of the best musicians and singers from all genres.

Keller & The Keels consists of William Keller and husband and wife combo Larry and Jenny Keel. This trio describes their sounds as ‘Appalachian psychedelic bluegrass.” Keller & The Keels has been performing together since 2004 and have produced two records.
